"I must stress that this matter needs to be settled before 8:15PM GMT." It's time to pay! This is why I never answer the phone if it's a number I don't recognize! This 5-minute short film will have you on edge even if it's only about one phone call. How Would You Like To Pay? is made by an English filmmaker named Andrew David Barker and it's available to watch online now. A man receives a phone call from an extremely threatening debt collection agency. Edward Wolstenholme stars as the man who receives the call. The small cast also includes Maria Forrester as the voice on the call. If you think there isn't much that seems threatening or scary about a simple phone call, just wait until you see this. The short has the vibes of early Ben Wheatley like Kill List, as there's more going on here than just a debt collection. Watch it in full below.
